Didn't read all 9 pages of the thread but great advice. I personally when making sure any gun is not loaded is putting my finger in the barrel to make sure a round is not loaded. (when I say in the barrel I mean the end where the round goes in)

I have a question on gun safety. In Houston Tx the summers are brutal. Extremely hot and humid. When i get inside my car after its been parked in the sun for an hour or more i can't even touch the steering wheel without getting burned. So, being a new carrier i was wondering how safe it is when i leave my car parked all day in the hot sun with my weapon in my small gun vault with magazine loaded. Will it make bullets more sensitive and cause a self discharge from the heat? :patriot:

That can be extremely dangerous! Once the ammo reaches about 400°F, they will explode!!!

Seriously, it's not a problem. ;-)

Make sure if your holster is made of kydex it doesn't get left in the car as well. I also live in Houston, and after coming back to my car a few hours later my weapon was still cool to the touch(surprisingly), so I feel safe in saying you'll be good.
